BOYS MEET

The Jesuit boys powered to the team win this weekend largely relying on depth, though they had two individual winners at the meet. Both wins came late in the game, as freshman Nick Simons took the 100 back (51.64) and sophomore Marco Nosack clocked a 57.23 to take the 100 breast.

Jesuit was on a tear to close out the meet, and finished on top with a win in the 400 free relay (3:07.97). The big leg on that relay was the lead-off, where senior Trent Martinez was 45.93. Martinez contributed two runner-up finishes this meet, touching 2nd in the 200 free (1:37.71) and 500 free (4:31.16). Jesuit bookended the meet after winning the 200 medley (1:35.76) to kick off the finals session.

Century senior Luke Thornbrue was a double winner ahead of Martinez in the longer free races, putting up times of 1:37.27 and 4:26.04 to take those wins. Another notable swim came from Tigard senior Ben Miller, who was 48.59 to win the 100 fly after having been 1:50.09 to take 2nd in the 200 IM behind Central Catholic’s Kevin Keil (1:50.09).
